FULLERTON, CA (FOX 11/CNS)
Voluntary evacuation order has been lifted around La Habra brush fire near the border of Orange and Los Angeles counties.
Fullerton Deputy Chief says 10 streets have been ordered evacuated. Fullerton police were going door to door, ordering people out. The 15-acre blaze was reported around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday.
Although winds were light, the blaze quickly threw lines of flame through brushy ridges and draws ringed by hundreds of homes. Fire engines protected the closest homes in neighboring cul-de-sacs.
Aircraft, including giant Super Scoopers, are dumping water on the flames.
The fire was leaping through chaparral and grass made tinder-dry by years of drought. There's no word on what caused it.
Fullerton city officials say evacuation centers have been set up at the La Habra Community Center, 101 W. La Habra Blvd., and Fullerton Community Center, 340 W. Commonwealth Ave., for residents impacted by that fire on the border of the two cities
